Alerting Attention and Time Perception in Children.
Droit-Volet, Sylvie
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v85 n4 p372-84 Aug 2003
Examined effects of a click signaling arrival of a visual stimulus to be timed on temporal discrimination in 3-, 5-, and 8-year-olds. Found that in all groups, the proportion of long responses increased with the stimulus duration, although the steepness of functions increased with age. Stimulus duration was judged longer with than without the click at all ages. With the click, time sensitivity improved, especially in younger children. (Author/KB)
